Unspoken Communication

Since I’ve been dating Martin, we’ve experienced many instances where we’ve said the same thing at the same time or said what the other was thinking. Now I’ve known Martin for about 6 years now and I’m sure we’ve had times in the past throughout our friendship, where this type of connection has happened but as we’re spending more time together, these coincidences started to occur several times throughout the day. Sometimes we would randomly message each other throughout the day about something, at the time the other is thinking about the same thing. I love having this type of connection with someone as this is not something that can be easily faked and it’s beautiful when we can experience ourselves tuned-in to one another on a shared wavelength. This leads me to wonder about Telepathy between couples, does it exist, if it doesn’t exist, can it be cultivated and if it does exist, how can you strengthen it. Telepathy is the communication between two minds, separated over a distance, without the use of the five known senses.

While researching the topic online, I’ve read theories on soul mates and twin flames and many other reasons why this sort of coincidence can happen. According to http://www.twinflamesoulmates.com, the terms ‘soul mate’ and ‘twin soul’ are often used synonymously and there is much confusion betweem the two. A soul mate and a twin soul (twinflame) are two different concepts. Throughout a lifetime one has many soulmates, but throughout eternity, one has only one twinsoul or ‘twinflame’. A soulmate relationship can take many different forms such as that of a good friend, a family member, a romantic partner, or even a co-worker. Brief encounters with strangers who inspire us or help us in some way can also be soulmates who we are meant to cross paths with. Twin flames, also called twin souls and twin rays, is ‘one soul’ that was split into two souls. Twinflames are often referred to as being the other half of one’s own soul. This does not imply that each twin is only half of a soul on earth, for each individual soul is already whole. What a Twin Flame does imply is that at one time, the two individual souls were one.

I’m not quite sure of the reason behind this so called “Telepathic Connection” between Martin and myself but I do know that having a spiritual connection with someone I’m in a relationship with, is of great importance to me. A spiritual connection would mean different things for different people but what is most important, is the spiritual fulfillment both parties derive from being in a relationship with each other.

Life After Birth

A few weeks ago, I found an interesting excerpt online which I felt compelled to share. It’s one view of Life, Death and God. It’s not one that you must accept wholeheartedly but I loved it because it forces you to think and I’m a firm believer that “Wonder is the beginning of Wisdom”, which is one of the great quotes by Socrates. There are many theories on what happens before and after we enter this world and without a doubt the Christian ideal is the most widely purported. I believe this reading questions that theory and theories of other religions. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and it causes you to expand your thinking about Life, Death and God.

In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.” – Útmutató a Léleknek

Entrepreneurial Spirituality

In 2006, I developed a habit of meditating for about 15-30 minutes everyday at noon. While I have not been as consistent as I would like to be with my meditations, I still make the effort when I can. It is my goal for 2015 to make this more of a daily habit than I currently do. As I thought about today’s blog post this morning, I received an email about Spiritual Fitness from Brandon Epstein’s Entrepreneurial Fitness. In the email the day before from Brandon, he mentioned the 4 pillars of Entrepreneurial Fitness. These include:

Spiritual Fitness: Developing a purpose driven vision that aligns your daily actions with your goals and aspirations.

Physical Fitness: Creating your dream body, perfect health and having the energy you need to achieve the success you desire.

Emotional Fitness: Developing the ability to overcome stressors without becoming overwhelmed. Learning the tools to keep you positive and enjoy the process of building your empire.

Mental Fitness: Gaining the ability to access flow states (your mental zone); as well as improve creativity, focus and clarity.

He stated that the reason for spiritual fitness is to give you purpose. To make you feel like you are working towards something that is greater than yourself. Brandon defines spiritual fitness as the conviction to follow through with daily actions that align with a purpose driven vision. Without that strong WHY, we can eventually burn out or lose interest.

To start building Entrepreneurial Fitness Brandon recommends you start by finding out exactly what it is you desire and then creating an identity that will get you that desired outcome. Once you discover what it is that you want you can hold yourself to standards and values everyday that will keep you aligned with your greater purpose. Having strong spiritual fitness is something we must train daily, it’s all a process of growth.
